Selected writings

On the Green-Schwarz mechanism and KK-compactification of heterotic supergravity/heterotic superstring to 6 dimensions (see also at D=6 N=(1,0) SCFT):

On the 3-brane in 6d as a black brane in an M5-brane/NS5-brane worldvolume

and of its relation to D=4 N=2 super Yang-Mills theory:

On Dp-D(p+2) brane intersections (such as D1-D3 brane intersections) as spikes/BIons from the M5-brane:

On deriving the equations of motion for the M5-brane via superspace-methods (superembedding approach):

On E11-exceptional generalized geometry for D=11 supergravity/M-theory:

Discussion of the dual graviton in terms of E11 U-duality:
